The Bulls will enter the fall (winter?) of 2020 fairly inflexible from a roster standpoint. But it's never too soon to look ahead to a loaded free agent class in 2021.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George own opt-outs that offseason. Anthony Davis could maneuver his complex contract situation to free himself up, too. And the class is set to be headlined by soon-to-be two-time reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bulls, for their part, are projected to have a wealth of cap room to toy with — coronavirus complications pending.

Now, as it stands, the Bulls' rebuild probably isn't at a point to consider any of the above, or other top-line targets, realistic options. But even the shadow of a chance that a player like Giannis might make the trip down I-94 to Chicago is enough to get fans salivating and graphic-designers whirring. Especially on the heels of the summer of "The Last Dance."

This should inspire a bit of buzz, too:

That's right. Giannis' new-born son Liam was spotted in virtual attendance of the Bucks' Tuesday afternoon seeding game against the Nets. And he was clad in a Michael Jordan Bulls onesie.

So, we know where the family stands. Whether dad follows suit remains to be seen. The watch is on.
